Reversible reactions

  • Some reactions go to completion, where the reactants are used up to form the product molecules and the reaction stops when all of the reactants are used up
  • In reversible reactions, the product molecules can themselves react with each other or decompose and form the reactant molecules again
  • It is said that the reaction can occur in bothdirections: the forward reaction (which forms the products) and the reverse direction (which forms the reactants)
